Between a vibrant non-make money blog and an impersonal make money blog

I have several blogs that I use entirely for making money. It is more of an informative blog and I never share the links nor get them known locally because I depend on USA traffic. Though the money that flows in make me happy, somehow, I still love my personal blog that makes pittance.

I can never sustain blogging or do anything online stuffs if there is no interaction between humans aka my blog readers/commentors and myself. I see very little purpose in churning out post after post of information for the sake of people to click on our ads or buy stuffs from the affiliate.

So, if you are thinking of making money through blogging, do make yourself a little private corner where you can express yourself as an individual. Do you notice that many of the bloggers like Darren Rowse, John Chow, Matt Cutts (not exactly make money but similar) and etc have a personality on their blog?

My advice is never charge on blindly, with your mind fixate on making money, writing fanatically and sweating over how much you have made or going to make. You will burn out and it takes the fun away from blogging. I know many new bloggers made a nuisance of themselves by writing a few posts and then, shitting all over the blogosphere with their shitty, inane comments with the hope of people visiting them. You are a nobody but a bunch of spams. Establish an identity first, get yourself a network of blog buddies and take it slowly.

It is not easy to maintain the balance of being a person and a money making blog but if you can do both, making money is much more meaningful.

Gee, I am preachy, eh?

    Blogging not for youself and for others, the time is just ticking away when you’ll lose it and expedite the process of not blogging anymore..

    Personal blogs keeps a blogger sane! I think there are one too many make money blogs out there who really are copy cats of other blogs which are prolly copy cats of some other blog!
    I think its good that you make money out of blogging but if that’s too much of the be pretty crappy at it isn’t it?

    Hm. how could making money be impersonal? I didn’t get the idea.

    You have to love blogging to be successful. I don’t think that you will be motivated enough to make a killing just doing it for money.

    I have my personal technical blog wher I do it for fun. And sometimes after a year even profit from the knowledge I could forget. And other blogs just to make money like You do and every time I have a free minut I try to write something interesting on the privat blog. This way I still have a lot of fun while bogging :)

    I agree with the above comment, blogging is hard work and you really have to love what you do to get the motivation and make money

    As quoted, you have to maintain the balance of being a person and a money making blog. And if you can do both, making money is much more meaningful. Why not leave a little space for your thoughts and personal notes in your blog? Besides, you’re readers might be more interested when you put a little touch of your personality on the site.

    The art of blogging is an unappreciated art of our modern day. In order to turn what would be a normally boring subject into something people get interested in takes a lot of savvy. Adding personality your blog can only be done by those that have personality themselves.
